First Creek 'Botanica' Chardonnay 2018

Special Price $18.00 Regular Price $25.00
A lovely Chardonnay showing its cool climate fruit off beautifully. There’s stone fruit, kernels, citrus and evidence of malolactic fermentation in the deliciously cheesy character in this one. Lovely acid, structure, texture and finish. James Halliday rates First Creek Wines as a 5 red star producer, his highest accolade and offers the following… ‘The quality of the wines has been consistently exemplary, and there is every reason to believe this will continue in the years to come.’

Chardonnay sits on the fence of many a wine enthusiast. Versatile, kind in nature and oh so compliant, however for most it's still dressed in attire that's so distinctly... 90s. Shoulder pads, overalls and bike shorts saw this particular version of white wine with such a wooded vengeance, we were practically asking the chefs to take the butter out of the meals to make way for it. Thankfully however, times are a changin'. Underneath all that 90s getup reveals elegance and sophistication and Australia is doing its bit to make Chardy interesting again. Read Full Article
